Default Any Usenet Experts Here?

I'd like to post a message in alt.test, then find a way to see all the information contained in that message about where it came from. For example, will my IP address and other specifics be added. And to check for this, I need to know what software I can use to show me all headers, or whatever it is I'm supposed to look for.

This might help:

http://www.tcpipguide.com/free/t_Use...lHeaders-2.htm

The From: field (in mandatory headers) is supplied by the user (iow, easily spoofed, not reliable).

What news reader are you using?

I know some of the dual-purpose programs like Forte's Agent and Thunderbird (both of them do both email and newsgroups) can show full headers for any message.

Don't know that one, I'm afraid. Does it not show the header info you want to see?

If not, the next thing I'd try would be opening the message store in a text editor -- if it's stored in a suitable format.

Thanks, John. I'll look into that.
